I made homemade meatballs this weekend. My boys love meatballs- probably more than the spaghetti we ate them with! The nice things about meatballs is that they freeze very well.
I baked these meatballs and used a bakers rack to help drain the fat!
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 lb. Ground Pork
3/4 Cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup Red Wine
1 Clove Garlic, pressed
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan
1 Teaspoon Parsley
1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Place a baking rack on top of a cookie sheet. Form 1 inch balls and place on the baking rack.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Cook until the middle of the meatball is no longer pink. I got about 40 meatballs out of this recipe.
See all of the drippings on the pan?
I used my homemade spaghetti sauce and whole wheat noodles to make our Italian feast. These meatballs would be great on the Mini Meatball Sliders too!
- Use different types of ground meat. For a healthier version, used ground turkey.
- For freezing, bake as directed above. Let cool completely and then place on a baking sheet. Freeze for a few hours and then place in a freezer bag. When you are ready to use the meatballs, place in marinara sauce and simmer for 20 minutes.
